    This weekend, downtown DCís St. Johnís Church will have local artists paint racial justice-themed murals on the plywood panels that were installed during the George Floyd protests. St. Johnís is located on Black Lives Matter Plaza, and served as the backdrop for Donald Trumpís infamous bible photo op this June. Artists will be painting the murals at the church this Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM. The public is invited to join a dedication prayer service beforehand, and to stop by throughout the day to watch the painters work. Attendees can also add art of their own by contributing...
  • Complaints by Ignorant, Hateful Liberals Force Michigan Bed and Breakfast to Take Down Norway Flag Because They Think Itís the Confederate Flag

    A couple in St. Johnís, Michigan recently took down the red, white and blue flag of Norway displayed on the porch of their bed and breakfast after receiving continuous complaints by ignorant liberals who accused the couple of flying the Confederate battle flag. The Nordic Pineapple, run out of a mansion built in 1861 by a Union general, was started two years ago by Greg and Kjersten Offenbecker. The couple flew the flag of Norway from a pillar opposite the American flag to honor Kjerstenís Norwegian heritage (her grandfather immigrated from Norway.) Both the U.S. and Norway flags were taken...
  • Press Evacuated From White House Amid Riot Breaking Out in DC

    Tucker Carlson reported that it is highly unusual for the press to be evacuated from the briefing room. The mob is attempting to set up a ďBlack House Autonomous ZoneĒ near the White House, similar to the CHAZ/CHOP lawless zone in Seattle. The Seattle zone has been plagued with theft, drugs, violence, and even murder in recent days. In DC, the mob also attempted to tear down the iconic statue of Andrew Jackson outside the White House and once again vandalized the historic St. Johnís Church that they had lit ablaze just weeks ago.

    On the night of Sunday, May 31st, I read about the burning of the church near the White House, and, as a VA headquarters employee[i], I received a work email stating that our two HQ buildings next to that church -- the main building and the overflow building -- had been ďvandalized.Ē On Friday, June 5th, I came back to DC to see for myself what had happened to the VA and surrounding areas. Keep in mind, the VA -- for all of its problems, centered around its enormous size and perennial inability to clean out its own rot --...

    The mainstream media is not only posting biased news these days they‚Äôre posted complete lies. These leftist hacks will say anything to hurt Trump.CNN reported on Saturday the President Trump wanted to call up 10,000 active duty troops to quell the violent leftist rioting, looting and arson on the streets of Washington DC. Leftist protesters rioted, looted and torched the historic St. John‚Äôs Church in Washington DC last week. This is FALSE. I was in the mtg. @realDonaldTrump very clearly directed DOD to surge the National Guard ‚Äď not active duty- after nights of vandalism & arson in DC....

    U.S. Attorney General William Barr rebuked the false narrative perpetuated by legacy media Sunday that protestors cleared near the White House last week were gathering in peaceful demonstrations. On Monday, protestors were dispersed by park police by pepper balls as the city neared at 7 p.m. curfew by Barr‚Äôs orders moments before President Donald Trump walked across the street to observe the damage done to the historic St. John‚Äôs Church.‚ÄúThey were not peaceful protestors,‚ÄĚ Barr said on CBS‚Äô Face the Nation. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs one of the big lies that the media is‚Ā†¬óseems to be perpetuating at this point.‚ÄĚCBS‚Äô Margaret Brennan pushed...

    By now you‚Äôve heard a number of reports claiming that tear gas was used against ‚Äúpeaceful protesters‚ÄĚ to clear the area around the White House so that President Trump could ‚Äúget his photo op‚ÄĚ at the historic St. John¬ís Episcopal Church, which had been burned in the riots the night before. Trump had just told the country he would restore the rule of law, which the left and the media think is just a dog-whistle for fascism, and set out to turn his symbolic act of walking through Lafayette Park to the church and holding up a Bible into a...

    Washingtonís Roman Catholic archbishop has roundly criticized President Donald Trumpís visit to the Saint John Paul II National Shrine on Tuesday. One day after Trump used federal police to forcefully disperse a peaceful protest in front of a D.C. Episcopal church for a photo op with the Bible, Archbishop Wilton Gregory insisted that the former pope the shrine is named after would never have condoned the presidentís tactics. ďI find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to...

    A Department of Defense adviser resigned, effective immediately, from the military's science board citing what he believed to be a violation of conduct from Defense Secretary Mark Esper. In his resignation letter, James Miller Jr., the former under secretary of defense for policy from 2012 to 2014, recalled that he swore an oath of office to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States ... and to bear true faith and allegiance to the same," similar to what the defense secretary had done before he took office. "On Monday, June 1, 2020, I believe that you violated that oath,"...

    A confrontation over a Trump sticker erupted on the Queens campus of St. John‚Äôs University Wednesday when a student threatened to smash a classmate's computer over her allegiance to the Donald. The anti-Trump student posted a photo to Twitter of a woman with a ‚ÄúTrump Make America Great Again‚ÄĚ sticker on her laptop and asked his followers to share the image. ‚Äú7000 retweets and i'll smash this b---h‚Äôs computer,‚ÄĚ the student wrote in the post. The Trump supporter in the picture complained to the school‚Äôs public safety office, according to another student. A short time later the two ran into...

    Iíve been out of pocket, so I missed most of the hullabaloo about Reverend Luis Leůnís indefensible Easter sermon at St. Johnís Episcopal Church in front of the Obama family. Among his comments he said the ďreligious RightĒ wants ďblacks to be back in the back of the bus, for women to be back in the kitchen, for gays to be in the closet, and for immigrants to be on their side of the border.Ē Once you get beyond the nasty, clichťd and divisive insinuations about conservatives being racists and the basic inappropriateness of the whole spectacle, it seems to...

    President Obama and his family this morning went to Easter Sunday services at St. Johnís Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. Here are notes on the Easter service from the pool reporter, which included this part, "It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back ... for blacks to be back in the back of the bus ... for women to be back in the kitchen ... for immigrants to be back on their side of the border":

    The Big East's football expansion plans leave the conference with 17 universities, including non-Football members. That's a terrible number for scheduling; the only way the basketball teams can schedule an even number of games is if they play every other team only once. 18 teams would allow three divisions of six teams each. Any team would play the other five teams in its division twice, and one half of the twelve other teams in the conference. 18 sounds like worsening the problem of too many teams, but having three divisions could actually restore some rivalries, and return the conference to...

    About 18 percent of St. Johns County registered voters cast their ballot by the time early voting for the general election concluded Saturday afternoon. Unofficial totals from the Supervisor of Elections office showed 24,440 of the county's 139,444 registered voters had voted since early voting began on Oct. 18. A breakdown of voters by party affiliation wasn't available Saturday night, but officials have said that Republican voters were turning out at a higher rate than Democratic voters last week. Just under 35,000 people had cast ballots last week in Duval, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns counties, and more than 20,000...

    Disgraced St. Johnís University dean, Cecilia Chang, who was charged earlier this month with embezzling over $1 million in donations from the college, was nabbed again today by the FBI and accused using scholarship students as domestic servants. Chang, 57, allegedly forced students to do her laundry, clean her house, cook and chauffeur her son around. ďChang threatened the students and placed them in fear that if they refused to perform these personal services they would lose their scholarships and be unable to attend St. Johnís,Ē FBI Special Agent Kenneth Hosey wrote in the arrest warrant.

    On Monday, March 29, 2010, President Obama was interviewed by NBC News and portions were broadcast on the Today show on March 30. According to the The Caucus blog at the New York Times: "Mr. Obama said he would not select a church while living in the White House. 'What we have decided for now is not to join a single church, and the reason is because Michelle and I have realized we are very disruptive to services,' he said. Instead, he said he would from time to time visit St. John's Church, across Lafayette Square from the White House,...
